Reliability Analysis of Wood-Plastic Structural Plates
The wood-plastic structural plates, which were made of polyethylene (PE) and poplar powder, were used in decking as a structural material. It is of great significance to analyze the material reliability for the safety in service. In this paper, the modulus of elasticity and static bending strength of specimens were obtained through test, the first order second moment method (FOSM) was used to analyze the reliability of the wood-plastic structural plates. The result showed that the wood-plastic structural plates have a better reliability, and the reliability of the wood-plastic structural plates was related to the thickness of the specimens.
